These were the topics for today’s meeting of Saguaro Romance Writers, Tucson, Arizona.

The morning presenter was our Vice President of Programs, Theresa Russell, who spoke about having a business plan as a writer.  Dear reader, I know what you’re thinking.  If you’re a writer, you’re not a business person.  That’s no longer true.  You have to be able to  notice how you are doing and where it is going.

I like the new five minute training Theresa does on different topics that are educational.  A nice new twist.

The afternoon presenter was our own Social Media expert Amanda Gordon, who followed up on our Goodreads conference call last month.  She showed us what we can do to use Goodreads to our advantage, not spam, protect some of our privacy, but more importantly get more readers.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
